More Films From the Early 2000's
It's Halloween week and time for our last horror anthology, so of course we pulled out the big guns with 2007's TRICK R TREAT! We are joined by Jason of Creepy Co, and spend the entire episode just gushing about what a great piece of entertainment this one is. We also get into a nice tangent about Super Troopers, so don't worry, still on-brand for us. Make sure your jack-o-lantern is lit all night long, just in case!
It's summertime and your HMN boys are downwind of something stinky, so of course we need to investigate. Following our noses, we stumble across the underappreciated 2005 remake of the Vincent Price classic HOUSE OF WAX. While we may not all agree on the merits of this film, we do agree that the practical effects and kills are delightfully gruesome. Also, props to whoever made Elisha Cuthbert look like a Plain Jane here... that is no small task. Wax poetic with us on the first episode of Year Five of Horror Movie Night!
We're rockin' and rollin' back into horror territory and takin' care of business with a sneer and a hip thrust. Join us in slobbering all over Bruce Campbell's chin in the fantastic BUBBA HO-TEP (2002)! We are joined this episode by our pal Ralph (@vhsdude/@kaijupod) and are in unanimous agreement that this movie rules and Bruce's Elvis impersonation is pretty damn good, man. Plus, how can you go wrong with a Don Coscarelli flick featuring a mummy cowboy who sucks souls from buttholes? Enjoy as we break out the rusty trombones this week on Horror Movie Night!
